Why would Democratic lawmakers in Maryland want to pass the first-in-the-nation legislation that would limit police access to popular DNA genealogical databases that have been used in recent years to solve decades-old rape and homicide cases across the country?
Using DNA analysis from crime scenes, authorities have been able to identify suspects such as the “Golden State Killer,” who terrorized Californians in the 1970s and 1980s. The genetic samples came from relatives who submitted to genealogy-tracing companies such as GEDmatch and Family Tree DNA.
Why do they not want criminals apprehended and the public protected?
Why is the filibuster now racist?
Last year Democrats used it 317 times and Republicans once.
When did they discover it was racist?
Sounds like a case of “I was for it before I was against it,” depending on who was in office.
Why is no one talking about the diversion from the filibuster they are using?
Reconciliation is a process that generally can be used only once per fiscal year, according to the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974.
Majority Leader Schumer is maneuvering to pass a third bill this year using this.
You see, reconciliation is a procedure that sidesteps the filibuster and lets you ram through an agenda without the support of a single opposition member.
They have used this process twice this year, and now are talking a third.
“It is hugely irresponsible for Schumer to consider undermining the few remaining rules that might bring discipline to federal budgeting,” said Chris Edwards, director of tax policy studies at the libertarian Cato Institute.
Why are they getting away with not allowing reporters at the border?
How can a free press that so condemned the last administration on the border accept not being allowed in to do their job and report on conditions?
How can they see the congressional pictures and videos and not demand access?
Why didn’t they report this Gallup Poll finding?
Over a quarter of the population from 33 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean (120 million), would like to permanently move to another country.
42 million named the U.S. as the place they want to come.
Why do we talk often of lost values? Here’s one example from Gallup.
American membership in houses of worship dropped below 50% for the first time in the 83 years that Gallup has been asking the question.
In 2020, 47% of U.S. adults belonged to a church, synagogue or mosque — down from 73% in 1937, and 70% in 1999.
Now religions have contributed to the decline, but from 73% to 47% tells you a lot. Here’s a graph of the decline from Gallup.
Take note this holy week.
